Duplicating Objects

QuarkXPress gives us three ways to make copies of its items—copying and pasting, Duplicate, and Step and Repeat. InDesign can do all this, of course, plus it has a few more options hidden up its sleeve.

Copying and Pasting

You can cut, copy, and paste objects in InDesign with the Selection, Direct Selection and Type tools. Like XPress, when choosing Paste from the Edit menu (or pressing Command-V/Ctrl-V), InDesign pastes the object in the center of the current page or spread. And, as with QuarkXPress, you may need to be careful about which page the object is copied to. InDesign places the object on the targeted spread—the one whose number is highlighted in the Pages palette and displayed in the lower-left corner of the document window—not necessarily the page that is visible on screen.
